Child Injury Claims We Handle
In many ways, children are more susceptible than adults when it comes to accidental injuries. Children have less life experience and awareness of the consequences of certain actions, meaning they are often reckless. Due to their energetic dispositions and busy schedules, they are also more prone to partake in potentially dangerous activities, such as sports. In the event your child was hurt at little or no fault of their own, but by the careless or reckless acts of another, their family is granted the right to sue the responsible party for damages.

Holding the Responsible Parties Accountable
A school or daycare facility can also be held liable for an injury to a child caused by intentional abuse from the operator/owner or staff. Facilities that are responsible for children’s wellbeing have a duty to provide competent and compassionate staff to provide care for your child. If your child is injured as a result of intentional abuse at a school, camp, sporting event, or daycare facility, you may be able to recover damages from both the facility as well as the individual employee responsible.
Common injuries that may be suffered at a childcare facility include:
- Scars, burns, and disfigurement
- Eye injuries and vision loss
- Lacerations and blood loss
- Muscle and joint injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head and neck injuries
- Hearing loss
- Loss of limb
